The Blog Candy being offered this month is a machine-embroidered angel which can be used as a bookmark or an early start to decorate your Christmas Tree!!!! Winner gets to chose the color of her angel from pink, white, ivory, or gold.

I have been busy with lots of projects to go with young readers and Veteran's Day. I'm sorry but I didn't get a project for Chicken Soup for the soul day done. Once you see what I've been up to, I'm sure you'll understand.

Let's start with Veteran's Day. I've wanted to make cards to give out to the Veterans for many years but never seem to have time. This Year I was determined to make time and I made 18 cards to hand out when we go to a war museum for a tour this weekend. I want to make more before the weekend's up to hand out Monday at the Veteran's Day Memorial service. 

Now for Young Readers day which is the 12th I am showcasing bookmarks I made using scraps. I sent these bookmarks to be used to help raise money for one of the food banks in Tucson, AZ. As you can see, I even made some card with matching bookmarks.



 


Thanks for stopping by today and your next stop along the way is Sandy's Blog . Don't forget to stop back next month on December 14th for the last Calendar Girls Day of the Year . . . .
